A WICKED LEGACY
Terrified by her unusual strength and frightening urges, Nicole Radouix’s sheltered country life is shattered when she discovers her family’s secret— she’s the daughter of a mortal mother and vampire father. Stricken, she flees to the seductive lure of the city to discover the truth about who and what she is. But the turmoil of post-revolution Paris is no place for an innocent.
A WILD DESIRE
Finding herself under the protection of noble ex-patriot Marchand La Valois, Nicole is pulled into deadly underworld struggles, both political and vampiric. As their passions ignite, Marchand soon realizes the lovely Nicole is more predator than prey and may be more of a threat than the unruly streets outside.
AN UNTHINKABLE DILEMMA
Desperate to control her dark desires, Nicole accepts an offer of guidance from a hypnotic enemy, ensnaring both her and Marchand in a dangerous web of centuries’ old revenge. To escape their deadly nighttime games, Nicole must embrace her immortality. But will it cost her Marchand’s eternal love?

And then her gaze settled far back in the shadows, upon the figure of a man in stark silhouette. She saw him jerk as if with some shock of recognition, then he took one gliding step forward to the edge of lamplight.
Reflection played an eerie game upon his face, highlighting skin so fair it seemed translucent and hollows so sharp and deep they were like caverns; a face so startling, so unnaturally beautiful she came close to stumbling in her study. Beneath an arch of black brows, eyes of an icy, luminous blue entranced her. And even as she jerked her head away, she caught the impression of his smile; serene and sinister all at once.
Nicole had never seen the Devil, but on this night, she was sure he walked abroad. And she was just as certain that he followed safely back amongst the shadows. She could feel him, an essence so powerful, it frightened her. But the moment they crossed the bridge, the sensations faded and she knew he was gone. But the fear lingered, lending a quickness to her heartbeats and an anxious panic to her mind.

A DARK DECEPTION

AN INEVITABLE SACRIFICE
Determined to hide his secrets from her, Louis soon becomes the cornerstone of Cassie’s investigation. He can’t allow her stubbornness to place her life—and his immortal soul—in danger. But as much as he tries to keep her safe in his arms, it soon becomes evident that Cassie’s become a target.

“You are wrong, Cassie,” came his soft drawl, as soothing and sensuous as a physical caress along the heart strings. “What binds us is stronger than vows and deeper than eternity.”
She trembled. Her gaze danced nervously away. “You’re speaking in riddles.”
“No, in truths. Look at me, Cassie.”
She couldn’t, suddenly afraid—of what he might say, of what he might see in her unguarded gaze.
“Look at me.”
A command as hard to resist as a physical force. She turned toward him, painfully aware of her flushed cheeks, but he didn’t notice them. He was fixed upon her eyes. His drew her in with a mesmerizing power, relaxing her denying tension, calming her anxious fears. Looking into his eyes was like falling into her soul.
“We are one, Cassie. You can feel that, can’t you? You are mine now. Can you deny it?”
She sucked in a fragile breath and whispered, “No.” Because she could feel it even if she couldn’t explain it. “I-I don’t understand.”
“You don’t have to understand. You only have to believe.”
The swirl of his power engulfed her senses, teasing her with strange prickles of awareness—of him as a man, of him as more than just a man. That was where confusion arose. What else was he? What could give him that kind of control over her sensibilities? Because she lived a life of asking questions and seeking answers, it went against her grain to blindly accept what was before her. Even when she was under a smothering pressure to do just that. She blinked hard and struggled against his spell.
“W-what are you doing to me?” she demanded with a gathering sense of self. With it came the scary realization that the emotional chords she was reacting to were being played outside her mind. “Is it some sort of hypnotism?”
He smiled blandly and continued to seduce her with his brilliant gaze. “No cheap magician’s trick, I assure you.”
“Stop.” That was said with a wavering certainty, so she took a deep breath and tried again with more authority. “Stop it!”
“But I am only giving you what you want. Why are you protesting?”
Feeling her will weakening, frantically, she sought an argument. “It’s not what I want!”
“No?” That word was edged with subtle mockery and he began to lean toward her. She meant to draw back, to maintain the distance, but was unable to move.
“I don’t want to be owned by a man. I want to be loved by him.” Even as she made that claim, her breatt slowed into long languid pulls and her eyelids sank down with a luxurious expectation. And when his mouth touched to hers, reason failed her.
“You wanted me, now you have me. The degree of possession should not concern you.”
But it did. That last flare of independence flickered. Arguments of the will couldn’t hold against barriers heart and mind had already conceded. Cassie closed her eyes and opened her soul, letting the essence of him overtake her, wondering dreamily why she’d objected at all.
When not at the keyboard or working full time as a legal assistant in Southwest Michigan, she can be found feeding her addictions for Netflix and all things fur, feather and fin, enjoying Grammy time (usually watching The Avengers), and meeting new friends and readers through her GoodReads “Nancy Gideon by Moonlight” group. Her books can also be found under the pen names Dana Ransom, Rosalyn West and Lauren Giddings.
